DBRLTeen Predicts 2012 Gateway & Truman Awards

Throughout the school year, DBRLTeen has been highlighting those books nominated for the Gateway and Truman Readers Awards. The Gateway Readers Award honors a young adult book as selected by Missouri high school students, while the Truman Readers Award is chosen by junior high students. Even though this award is administered by the Missouri Association of School Librarians (MASL), it is the responsibility of Missouri teens to choose the actual winner.  Based on circulation figures throughout our library system, DBRLTeen predicts that the following books will be recognized as this year’s top titles:
